Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
I NO LONGER HAVE THE OPTION TO CHANGE SCREEN SIZE TO NORMAL , WIDE, OR PANORAMIC.
When you use an HDMI or component output and the device (cable box or DVD is set to only put out a 1080i signal te display will lock up. It is usually OK for the DVD player, however you may want to go into the cable box and check off all possible outputs ie: 480, 720 etc. This may allow you to chage display settings when needed

Press the "Menu" button again if the lockout message remains on the screen.
Use the arrow buttons to navigate through the main menu options.
Highlight the "Settings" or "OSD Menu" option and then hit the Menu key again to access the new list of settings.
Scroll down to the "OSD Lock" heading. Use the arrow keys to change the setting to "No." Hit the Menu key again to return to the main menu. Scroll to the "Exit" setting and then hit the Menu key a final time to exit the menu setting and remove the OSD lockout.
hope this helps

Turn on your VIZIO HDTV. Press the orange button with the "VIZIO" logo, which looks like a letter "V" with a triangular wedge in the center. If there is no VIZIO logo button, press the "Menu" button. Press the "Right Arrow" button twice to highlight the "Setup" icon, which looks like a wrench.
Press the "Down Arrow" button three times to highlight the "Wide" menu item. Press the "Left Arrow" or "Right Arrow" buttons repeatedly until the correct aspect ratio is selected. "Normal" is for a standard definition 480i signal, which has a 3:4 aspect ratio. "Wide" is for high definition signals, and has a 16:9 aspect ratio. "Panoramic" stretches the outside of the image while keeping the center at the normal aspect ratio. "Zoom" enlarges the image on the screen. Press the "Last" button twice to close the VIZIO on-screen menu.
Watch the image on the screen of your VIZIO HDTV to ensure that the picture is at the right aspect ratio. If it still looks distorted, it's most likely because you chose the wrong aspect ratio setting, because your source device is set incorrectly or because you used the wrong connection method.
